In a nutshell
Adopting a coaching approach promotes initiative. In organisations where leaders are directive, people become used to having someone else telling them what to do and solving their problems for them. Identifying solutions rather than following orders is the key to unlocking creativity and innovation in others.
In today’s fast moving world, with rapid cycles of change and disruption and markets moving at a million miles an hour, creativity and innovation are even more critical skills that we must nurture and harness.
A coaching approach is the most effective approach to development because when we come to the answers and achieve a goal for ourselves, the psychological impact is far greater than if we do so by simply following orders.
In this 3 hr session we will:
- Explore the difference between training and coaching and when to apply each
- Practicing the essential skills of coaching – active listening & letting go of the outcome – and using the GROW model for coaching conversations
- Identify areas where and when we can to apply coaching in the moment in the organisation, and where we can improve our coaching skills required to adopt a coaching approach in our organisation
